Summary
We are fascinated by text and we are fascinated by reading. Is this because we are in a time of textual change? Given that young people always seem to be in the vanguard of technological change, questions about what and how they read are the subject of intense decate. Children as Readers in Children's Literature explores these questions by looking at the literature that is written for children and young people to see what it tells us about them as readers. The contributors to this book are a group of distinguished children's literature scholars, literary and media specialists who contemplate the multiple images of children as readers and how they reflect the power and purpose of texts and literacy. -- from back cover
